If you have curly hair like me or colour your hair you need some extra TLC to keep your hair looking and feeling great. It can be hard to keep your hair and extensions feeling silky smooth without adding too many products leaving our hair oily and with loads of chemicals on it. I hear you and I struggled with this for literally years. Leave in conditioners are not only hit and miss but can be crazily expensive. So when you are going for a deep clean for your extension and need a deep cleanse don’t take out too much cash DIY your leave in conditioning spray.
What you will need
This condition is pretty simple to do but you have to make sure that you have all of your kits together. The first thing you will need is a clean spray bottle. clear bottles make it easier to see what you are doing whilst you are making your mixture. You will also need your ingredients so make sure you have some coconut milk, avocado, olive oil, water and an essential oil. I love the smell of lavender and it smells great with the coconut. This may seem like a decent amount of ingredients but try looking at the back if your hair products, you probably won’t understand most of them and there will be a much longer list.
How to make it
The first stage is to make the conditioner. You will make more than you need for the conditioning spray so you can use it as you normal conditioner too or make more than one spray at a time. put ½ an avocado, ½ teaspoon, ½ a can of coconut milk and 10 drops of lavender essential oil into a food processor and mix them thoroughly together. Pour three tablespoons unto your spray bottle and top it up with warm water. The remainder of the conditioner can be put into a take away box for future use, crude but effective.
How to apply it
After you put the lid on like OutKast would say, “shake it like a polaroid picture”. To make sure it all blends properly together you will give it a vigorous shake. The way I have found works best on my hair and extensions is to apply the leave-in conditioner to damp hair. As it is the ends of your hair that get the most exposed to sunlight damage and dry weather it makes sense to concentrate your spraying to your hair ends. If you do this daily and are a bit lazy like me you can simply run your fingers through your hair to blend your spray in. if you want a guaranteed even coverage you can use a wide-toothed comb or a paddle brush. Once your hair has fully dried and your hair has absorbed your spray you can style your hair as you normally would. This spray particularly helps if you have just or are about to use a heat tool to style with.
